First-person tower defense

While this trailer doesn't really show a whole lot of what's coming in Sanctum 2, the game sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. Keeping in line with its predecessor, it's a first-person shooter/tower defense hybrid with four-player co-op. Think Orcs Must Die!, but with aliens instead of orcs.

We liked the original Sanctum back in 2011, and so far the sequel looks promising. It should be out later this year, and this one will be on consoles as well as PC. Check out some screenshots in the gallery below.
